  • If you are not using this batter immediately after fermentation, then store it in the refrigerator for later use.
  • Most important thing is do not ferment this batter for overnight. Cracked wheat batter takes very less time to ferment than our regular idly batter. So it is better to check the batter after 3 hrs.
